Today we said goodbye to our doggie of nearly 14 years...Jasper. Jasper was hit by a car last night. We thought he was ok. He got up and walked and drank water. My husband found him under the deck this morning, one of his favorite places to be. It is hard saying goodbye to our dog. This is the first dog John and I got together. He was such a lover. A Black Lab/Burmese Mountain dog mix that weighed close to 130 lbs but wanted so much to be a lap dog. He was a protector. He loved our children and was very patient and gentle with all of them. He was our "water" dog. We would take him to the ocean in California and he would just swim and swim.
